Comfortable, family-style hotel. Breakfast was very good both mornings. Sad though, that there was no soap in bathroom. Also no directory guide in room, so just had to guess that #9 would get through to reception. The tv remote was not working, and the door to our balcony could not open. However, this was taken care of. I think a... More

Room was ok however walls need to be looked at as there was dampness and then also very dark in the room just before sunset. Suggestion bigger windows to allow more light in and maybe some seating area. Breakfast was good the first day however on the second day some of the sausages was off tasted very sour. Cutlery should... More

We were disappointed to see how the hotel has gone down since we last visited 15 years ago. Breakfast not nice, but the location and friendliness of front desk staff was amazing. Noticed that the last time we visited, there was a full time chef in the dining hall and the food was amazing. Now that is gone - and... More

That a wonderful affordable family get-away! Although we initially had some hiccups with our room (comfortable, but by no means luxurious), the friendly staff managed to get us sorted in no time. The children would have happily never left the hotel - with being able to play some tennis, take a bike ride (rackets and bicycles bikes available at the... More

The transaction through Daddy,s Deal was excellent value for money and affordable in the tough economic times.We shall again make use of such an opportunity in the near future and will also recommend the hotel to our circle of friends.

Beautiful place and stunning view. Food is lacking in many departments. The hotel rooms shower in the bath was uncomfortable and left water all over the place after each shower. Overall the stay was not bad, just could have been made better with a decent room and decent food.

Very comfortable Family hotel. Excellent breakfast. Quiet and restful. Staff attentive and welcoming. Service very good. TV however, was poor. Unable to get SABC 2 and 3 and Supersport 1 and 2 were alternated.

The administration to get the group booked was a nightmare . Even this questionnaire is addressed to a member of the group and not to the organiser . When the group arrived no one introduced him or herself as the responsible person. The barman was inexperienced , disappeared and was totally inadequate for a group of 60 people. The kitchen... More
